    I love the blanket use of the term "their" image. Like all people that come from a particular race are the same. Ignorance is truly blissful

    Clinto....they mention the suspect is white because the assumption is usually that he's black. Since he wasn't they had to let us know.

    ... also if you are so worried about the lack of comments take it up with the WRAL website content folks. They are the ones that put it in the news briefs and a lot of people don't read those and heck as it stands now it's one news story short of being off the front page, sorry Mr. Conspiracy Theorist.

    LOL I was wondering when someone would go ALRIGHT! YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS A WHITE MAN!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't wait to show people that out of 20 bank robberies one is finally a white man woooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sorry but stereotypes exist for a reason dude. If you don't like it I suggest you talk to black people about shaping up their own image and not expecting the world to ignore it for fear of being called a racist.

    I have waited patiently and studied numerous other stories before I made this comment. Why is it that when the suspect is white that the articles clearly point that out but when the suspect is black, there's no mention of race?
